Scope and content
This painting may be the original work from which a large number of other versions of this composition appear. There is an earlier watercolour dated 1790 by Hibbert Binney in the N. S. Museum Collection which is similar to this work, and Binney was the Deputy Collector of Customs in 1801. The work therefore may have been done by Binney for his superior based on his earlier watercolour.
